Repairs and transplants

Hubby fixed the PVC pipes between the well pump and the storage tank last evening, and we did have water although the pump did not want to shut off.  We cut the circuit breaker, then turned it on this morning and noticed a small leak .... small leaks under such pressure never stay small.  Bah.  The problem seems to be the threads in the well pump hole, and by now the local hardware stores have closed for the day.  Guess we'll be going up the highway tomorrow to the big box stores.

While we were at the hardware store earlier this afternoon, I picked up some more cheater starts to transplant.  I have some Bonnie Red Sails lettuce and some Bonnie Georgia Hybrid collards.  The collards are mostly for the chickens, since the turnip greens I planted in the fall are just not keeping up with the birds' appetites.  The red lettuce will go into some salads, and probably some will go to the chickens as well.

I'll get pictures eventually.  I already missed the peach blossoms, but the Meyer lemon and the Persian lime have buds that should bloom soon.
